THIS WAS FANTASTIC. I was wondering about Peter, and ever since I read the Harry Potter series, I wanted to know what made him go over to Voldemort, and why he would betray his friends like he did. I think you did a phenomenal job showing why that happens, and it's a very Peter thing for him to do. He's not joining the Death Eaters because he's evil, or shares their beliefs, but it's because he wants protection and is afraid.
You did an amazing job writing Alecto and Amycus! I could picture them so clearly, and they just give me shivers! I love how they all mock Peter and treat him like a kid, because it shows how much contrast their is between the Death Eaters and the Order. And it's funny that he goes to them when they make fun of him, because he was just thinking about how often he's the butt of Sirius's jokes. That's just something I noticed, but I don't know if it was intentional or not! Haha.
And I loved the part with the Unbreakable Vow! It shows that Peter can't help what he does later, and that he's doing it to save his own life, which makes his death even more powerful! Ah this chapter was just so brilliant!
AND THEN SEVERUS AT THE END. I have no words for how amazing this is! Well, clearly I do, based on the size of this review, but you know what I mean!
This was absolutely phenomenal! Wonderful, wonderful work, as always! 10/10
Author's Response: I always wondered about the circumstances of Peter's betrayal, too! I don't think it would be any small thing to make someone turn tails like that -- and Peter's frustration at always feeling a bit on the outside, building in momentum for years and years, seemed a pretty plausible way to go about it. I'm so happy that you seemed to think so, too!
LOVE your comment about irony, too, because you're really one of the only people who's picked that up. ♥ The weirdest part of the entire situation as I've written it is that things really aren't better for Peter on the other side at all. But he thinks they're more powerful, and therefore undergoes the taunts, the teasing, because he thinks that's the thing that, in the end, isn't going to get him killed. I never thought much about Peter before writing this story, and still don't like him much, but he intrigues me so much more now. :)
You are too kind, Cassie! ♥ I was thrilled to see your name back here again on this story's reviews, and it made me so happy to hear all your wonderful compliments. Thank you very much!!
